According to the Adobe Digital Trends Report, in 2021, the past investments in customer experience have paid off, which further underlines the importance of speed and personalization. CX leaders were observed to flourish in the first half of 2020, and over 70% of the leaders outpaced their sectors. They were three times more likely to have 'significantly outpaced' their sectors than the mainstream.
The study also found that companies that have built vital analytics functions were more than twice as likely to say their customers are optimistic about their digital experience than their peers with lower levels of insight, which stood at 71% compared to 31% as per the contrary belief. Similar trends augment the amount of data and digital assets created to keep customers engaged.
